Lady Baltimore Cake

Lady Baltimore Cake

The classic and much-loved Southern cake.

To get a head start on the cake, bake the layers a day ahead, wrap in foil and store overnight at room temperature. Another option is to freeze the layers. In either case, make the frosting and assemble the cake the day you serve it. The frosting becomes crisp upon standing and provides a crunchy contrast to the tender cake and creamy filling. You may need to beat the egg whites for up to 12 minutes to form stiff peaks.
